Justice Margaret Scott Receives Chief Justices’ Award

Justice Margaret Ann Scott Receives the 2017 OJEN Chief Justices’ Award
On March 29th, Justice Margaret Scott became the 13th reipient of OJEN’s Chief Justices’ Award. The award recognizes her commitment to justice education in the Durham region. In 2002 she was the driving force behind the establishment of the Durham Public Legal Education Committee, which she has co-chaired for the past 15 years. Justice Scott is best known for the numerous visits she makes to speak to students in their classrooms and assist in their mock trial preparations. Her ongoing efforts to connect with students both in the courthouse and in their classrooms have put a human face on the justice system and contributed to greater understanding of its role in society.
